Investing in Real Estate or Commodities?

Play The Field

The world economy has continued in recent months to be massively unpredictable, from sure signs of recovery to those also indicating impending financial doom, global markets continue to be inconsistent and as such can be a dangerous place for experienced investors, let alone those new to the game.

By placing a large amount of your capital into the private equity marketplace, you can take advantage of a wealth of experience which means you will stand a far greater chance of achieving a healthy, equitable return following the conclusion of any investment period.

Two of the most popular areas which are invested in through the private equity marketplace are real estate and commodities.

Real Estate Investment

It is common knowledge that the best time to invest is when the market is at its lowest, as this is the time when huge returns are more likely as the market begins to grow. Real estate can however be a volatile animal due to fluctuations in the market as well as the lengthy investment periods involved. This is offset however by the possible rewards on offer for those who play the “long game” in terms of real estate investment, as well as the wide range of possibilities which are on offer to those involved with real estate investing.

Capital through the private equity marketplace is placed into a range of businesses who will look to take advantage of significant markets, be that renting, sales or other commercial opportunities. Each area has its pros and cons, be sure to explore these and be satisfied that your needs as an investor will be met, as well as understanding the short and long term potential of such investments.

The Commodities Markets

Even more unpredictable are the prospects when you invest in commodities. Such activity has led to the huge increase in popularity of platforms such as spread betting as an alternative to the traditional stocks and shares trading market. Investing in commodities is worthwhile if you are aware that there is likely to be a growing trend towards a certain commodity, ideally where demand will be far higher than supply to enable you to make the most of any investment.

One key consideration with commodities investment is natural occurrences, such as the weather. For example, a flood in a prolific diamond mine may considerably diminish the ability of distributors to get products to the market. While this could work in favour in terms of the supply and demand balance, it is more likely to lead to massively reduced confidence in the product and a substantial loss.

Commodities are a huge investment opportunity, yielding high returns and a significant part of the private equity marketplace.
